CHAMPCAR/CART: Long Beach: Herdez Competition Friday report

Mario Dominguez - Driver, Car 55 "I just couldn't get a rhythm going during qualifying. There was a lot of traffic out there. I was only able to get one good lap in, my last one, so I think the car is really quicker than the time shows.

"I just couldn't get a rhythm going during qualifying. There was a lot of traffic out there. I was only able to get one good lap in, my last one, so I think the car is really quicker than the time shows. It's a good car right now - of course, there are still a few things here and there we are going to do to make it better for tomorrow."

Vince Kremer - Team Manager

"During qualifying, we ran the same car that Mario had brushed the wall with in the morning session. The guys worked really hard to get the car repaired and we actually did get him out on track for the last few minutes of the final practice session that precedes qualifying - he just wasn't out long enough to log a lap time."

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

"I really don't know what happened there. I was on my last lap, a fast one, when I saw Paul Tracy in front of me. He must have been on a cool down lap but if he had stayed on his pace I would have never caught up with him. I don't know why but he slowed down and then sped back up again and I ran right into the back of him. If he had just moved over a little bit, I could have gone by easily."
